Tom McCarthy's WIN WIN had its world premiere a few days ago at the Sundance Film Festival. A McCarthy/Giamatti flick is a pure win win, which is why this little film became one of my favorites of the festival (my review HERE).

WIN WIN is a sweet story which follows Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) - lawyer by day, high school wresting coach by night. His practice isn’t very successful (he can’t even afford to fix the plumbing), and he’s not at all in shape (being outran in the opening scene gives us this heads up). He decides to take one of his clients into his care after discovering he can get paid weekly for it, and meets his runaway grandson, child wrestling prodigy Kyle Timmons (newcomer Alex Shaffer). Kyle soon starts wrestling on Flaherty’s team and everything around him begins to look promising again, from the wrestling team to family life.

Check out the trailer after the break. For those attending SXSW, WIN WIN will have its Texas premiere there in a just a few weeks. WIN WIN opens in theaters March 18th!
